Offence type: Burglary in a Dwelling Distraction Burglary
Date and Time of the offence:    Friday 1st Feb 2019      12:40
Location of the offence:      Springfield, Upton Road, Slough 
Details of the offence:
At around 1240 hrs a white male wearing a hat knocked on the aggrieved's window and asked her if she'd heard a bang and if she's spoken with his boss. Aggrieved said 'NO', and the male was joined by a younger man.  The younger male then asked to come inside so they could run her cold water due to a boiler bursting in another flat within Springfield.
The aggrieved let the men in without checking their ID.  Once inside the younger male began looking under the sink. This male stayed within the sight of the aggrieved the whole time. It is unknown if the other male entered the house.
The aggrieved believes that the other male may have gone into her bedroom.
